Christie Troutt

Beverly Hills, California Travel Agent

Corporate Travel Consultant

As a corporate travel agent, my job is two-fold: (1) making business trips as comfortable and time-efficient for road warriors as possible, and (2) helping financial managers and accountants hit their budgets and get the reporting they need.

After your first booking with me, I will know that you will not fly unless you can get an aisle seat and that you only like to stay with a certain hotel brand and want your rate to include a full, complimentary breakfast. I then keep your preferences in mind and remember your loyalty programs, the type of pillow you prefer, and any dietary requirements while ensuring that you get the best value possible.

Thanks to my relationships with hotel reps, many of whom are personal friends, I  can often procure last-room availability or a one-time lower rate so you can remain in policy and stay at a special hotel.

I will also have your back and promptly fix anything that goes wrong, from rebooking a flight to making sure you are never walked from a hotel or given a room next to a construction site.

As a Protravel agent, I have many tools to make your travel seamless. I have direct access to the airlines, so when something goes wrong or business class is sold out, my clients get priority treatment. Similarly, at hotels, my clients get value-added benefits such as free breakfast, early check-in, complimentary Wi-Fi and VIP recognition from the Manager.

The more you travel with me, the more I can anticipate how you travel. That can bring important benefits. In addition to keeping your preferences in mind when I book your trips, I might also learn that you often change plans and forget to advise me. By putting a reminder on my calendar to check with you the day before your flight, I can still get you a credit or refund if you have decided not to take that flight.

Protravel also has top-of-the-line financial reporting and the CRM team is super-responsive, so if your company needs a report, you will get it on a timely basis. I work as part of a corporate team of four that have worked together for many years. When there is a problem, we all kick into gear. That means if you miss a connection, you will not need to get on a line and wait to be rebooked or sit on hold until someone can take your call. We are already rebooking you while you are still in the air.

Many companies have been with us for 10 and 20 years and take us with them as they change jobs. I would love the chance to meet with you and show you why.

Simply The Best

Reviewed By Amanda - San Francisco, CA | Traveled to Mexico
Christie is the absolute best! Cannot recommend working with her enough. She and her team take the most obscure travel requests and knock it out of the park every time. From executive travel, to team offsites, to large corporate retreats – Christie knows her stuff. She has helped me send executives to Asia, teams of 20-30 to Sonoma and LA, and teams of 300+ to Mexico (3 times now). Christie knows whats 'on brand' for our company, and scours the earth to find the best experiences, restaurants, hotels, and event vendors for us. She can work with a budget too! Any time I'm in travel planning need, I would trust no one more than Christie
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Travel with my Mom!

Reviewed By CD - Valley Village | Traveled to Barcelona ~ Spain ~ Europe
I met Christie while working with my past Executive and was sure to continue my relationship with her for my travel needs on to my next Executive. Christie now navigates very complicated trips throughout Australia, China, and the US seamlessly. And I use her for personal travel - my friends and family use her too!

The Dream Travel Specialist

Reviewed By Chris - New York, NY | Traveled to Worldwide
Christie is a dream to work with and goes above and beyond for our employees and clients. She is extraordinarily responsive, thoughtful in her process, and protective of our budgets. We work with many high-profile clients and it is a relief to know that we can fully trust Christie to put as much thought and care into the relationship as we would. When travel disruptions pop up, Christie is on the case, sometimes even before we know about them. Our organization has saved a tremendous amount of resources, money, and headaches thanks to Christie's brilliance.
